Last evening I signed up for Amazon Web Services (AWS) free usage tier to test the features and available services. Another reason was to use Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for storing my site’s backups. The services are available at fairly reasonable price. Especially, if you are using S3 then you are making a very good deal. Since, the free usage tier comes with 750 free hours of Amazon EC2 for each month for a year I thought of giving it a try and running WordPress. Here is a step-by-step guide to setting up and running WordPress on Amazon EC2. Sign up / Log in to your AWS Account: If you do not have an AWS account then you can signup for the free usage tier and login to your account.

Who uses WordPress for their Blog… Microsoft! Bouncing around the place today putting some updates to the Microsoft News App for iPhone and iPad. One of the big sites for information and news around Microsoft for Mac products is naturally their own website. What we did find interesting was the blog site on this Microsoft web page: Is actually running on WordPress. http://blog.officeformac.com/ Which makes perfect sense to us, as we run the http://www.interactivewebs.com website blog on WordPress too. It really is so good for blogs, that at this time there is nothing better around. We like it so much that we are recommending it to all our clients as a supportive SEO / SEM tool to bring hits to their site. We have setup our on server environment specifically for blog sites (and can offer hosted WordPress sites). Just like the fact that good old Microsoft has dumped… Read More »Who uses WordPress for their Blog… Microsoft!
We have been using the Feed2Tweet plugin on our WordPress blog site at: http://www.interactivewebs.com/blog We found that in recent weeks, it has stopped posting data when we blogged with the Windows Live Writer plugin that we normally use. So we decided to find a new plugin to take care of the auto tweeting. We came across the “tli.tl Auto Twitter Poster” plugin. That from all accounts should work well, if only a little delayed. The post system configures with a Twitter API registration (normal for this sort of thing), and appears to work well. Note There are two versions on the plugin, one is listing as version 3.8 (we found that did not work) the other is the 3.8.1 showing as separate plugin. We found this tested fine.
